Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Around the world the chorus rings,
And hands are joined with hands;
A Brotherhood of Service sings,
In all the happy lands;
And blithe they sound the watchword still
That ever has sufficed:
“The will! the will! the blessed will!
The will of Jesus Christ!”

2 In crowded town or lonely plain,
‘Mid many friends or few,
With man’s applause or man’s disdain,
To one allegiance true,
That sole desire their hearts could fill,
Tho’ all the earth enticed:
The will! the will! the precious will!
The will of Jesus Christ!

3 When proud Ambition gilds her goal,
When Ease to slumber calls,
When silken Mammon lures the soul
To rainbow tinted halls,
The Brotherhood of Service still
Exalts the Pearl unpriced:
The will! the will! the holy will!
The will of Jesus Christ!

4 And when at last the golden years
Have bro’t the crowning day,
When toil and trial, pain and fears,
Forever pass away,
Upon the summit of the hill
Is One that keepeth tryst:
‘Tis He, the Will! the living Will!
Our Master, Jesus Christ!
